Unlearn the Future – Morris Live at TEDx Melbourne

Date posted: December 20, 2013

To have the TEDx stage for 18 minutes is a privilege and an honor. To use this global platform to tell the story of my family's past, to introduce my ancestors who have not been spoken of or seen in over 70 years to a worldwide audience that they could never have imagined and to combine all of this with my love of the infinite possibilities of the future and what we must each do to allow these opportunities into our lives is a gift that I will cherish forever - thank you!! I would love you to watch it, like it and leave a comment to let me know what you see ahead and what excess baggage you're leaving behind to make room for the future and an enormous thank you to the 1,000+ people that watched it within the first 24 hours of it being put up on YouTube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ooCfaC-xJlw

Homemade TEDx

Date posted: December 9, 2013

I was sent this homemade version of last week's TEDx presentation, it reminds me of the counterfeit movies (not that I have ever seen one) where you can see the tops of the audiences heads, occasionally hear their comments and the vision is not quite right, but I though it was worth posting anyway, until the real thing arrives. http://youtu.be/TjofVWg76hI

Eat it, or not

synthetic hamburgerBy 2050 the demand for meat will have doubled across the globe, but we will have less water, land and farmers to grow it with. Given that it's unlikely we will decrease our universal appetite for animal protein, nor will we unfortunately get any better at sharing what we already have and making it go further, so how will we solve our ever-growing problem for meat production?
